The latest Far Cry 3 news and rumours, from release date and trailer to possible map editor features and multiplayer gameplay

 

Update: Check our our hands-on Far Cry 3 review

Gamers have been crying out for the third instalment of open-world shooter Far Cry for over three years. Originally scheduled for release in late 2011, the game was delayed causing much frustration. But will it be worth the wait?

Far Cry 3: Single player gameplay

Not much is known about the single player campaign as of yet. The few details that have emerged are that you will play as a character called Jason Brody, and that the location will be tropical – similar to the first Far Cry game.

The trailer released at E3 last June revealed that it would have much more of a stealth focus, with new moves to incorporate this such as jumping melee attacks to take out the enemy silently. The enemies are now displayed on the mini map so you can see their location.

A white dot on the map displays the villains and these dots turn red when they spot you. Once you have been seen, the enemy will call for back up and you will have to set out on a one man mission to kill everyone.

Players can also use the surroundings to their advantage when trying to sneak up on enemies. Utilising the sounds and features of the island will be the key to success. For example, in the trailer, Brody takes out an enemy stealthily by using the sounds of the waterfall to mask the sounds he is emitting.

You can still use the gung-ho approach to the game, and there are features which allow this type of gamer to succeed. There are plenty of sniping points and the implementation of zip-wires allows the element of surprise to be combined with an aggressive style of play.

The AI has been updated with the developers trying to create a more human feel. The enemy can make mistakes at various points in the game. The less experienced the villain is, the more mistakes they will make and vice-versa.
